The Imrei Emes (Avraham Mordechai Alter of Gur) & Aliya
Join Rabbi Chaim Brovender and learn about the the Imrei Emes (Avraham Mordechai Alter of Gur), the son of the Sfat Emes, and his writings about Aliya. Most of the Rebbes of Gur were opposed to Zionism and working with it’s leaders because many of the Zionists rejected the Torah. The Imrei Emes did not hold that view.
